Markzware, developer of FlightCheck and inventor of preflighting, released PageZephyr, a content search and extraction engine. PageZephyr has been developed using Markzware's Common Reader Architecture (CRA), the high-performance technology at the heart of Markzware's current and future products.
Benefits and Features of PageZephyr:
PageZephyr technology makes it possible to search proprietary documents, and then takes that to a higher level allowing users to examine and extract text from the most popular publishing native file formats, such as Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress, and soon Microsoft Publisher, PageMaker and other document types. Content-intense professions that specialize in managing, locating and re-using large volumes of specific data will substantially benefit. PageZephyr is especially valuable to businesses such as: advertising, publishing and printing, manufacturing, finance, legal (e-discovery / e-forensics), information and governmental agencies.
How PageZephyr Works:
PageZephyr is the first and only solution that indexes, locates and outputs content created from proprietary or encoded formats without the need for the original authoring application. The release version of PageZephyr is compatible with .indd (Adobe InDesign CS through CS4), and .qxp (QuarkXPress versions 6 through 8) files. In addition, PageZephyr's index extension capabilities can extend indexing to both attached volumes and networked volumes, to include "the enterprise."
According to DCLnews "The fact is, if 30 percent of an organization's content was found to be reusable, that would mean a reduction of 30 percent in the cost of maintaining the documents." PageZephyr is a tool that helps to increase the value of original, legacy content, bridging the print world to the internet world. Print production firms offering services that include handling digital data for their customers will particularly benefit from PageZephyr.
